Miss Betty is a 93-year young retired nurse who volunteers in WNCAP’s Franklin office, assembling harm reduction kits for people who inject drugs.
Her inspiring story is the subject of one of the WNCAP Mini-Docs which premiered on World AIDS Day 2020.
WLOS reporter John Le noticed an Instagram post about Miss Betty and decided more people needed to hear her uplifting tale. That’s how she became the WLOS Person of the Week!
